A multimodal user equipment (UE) monitors various operational conditions indicative of reduced reliance on multimodal capabilities, such as a deactivated display, an immobile UE, low data consumption by background software applications, or a low battery level, and selectively enters a reduced multimodal mode in which the frequency at which measurement operations are performed for various supported radio access technologies (RATs) or radio frequencies is reduced. This results in a reduction in the amount of power and processing bandwidth that otherwise would be consumed if performing these measurement operations at their normal rates.
